Senior Class trip


After four years of working on different fund-raising projects, like selling old and used paper to recycle and three times changing the travel dates because of strikes or the guys’ premilitary service, the Senior class trip finally became a reality on October 14-18. The target was the Andalusian-style city of Tarija, one of the major tourist attractions of Bolivia. It is located in the southern part of the country, lies at an altitude of 6,312 feet (1,924 m) above sea level with a Mediterranean-like climate. It is best known for its numerous vineyards, excellent wine production and many flowers. For many of these students this tour was their first expedition outside their Camiri/Santa Cruz perimeter. We all came back with many fond unforgettable memories.

  1. Nice! Beautiful scenery!

  2. Tarija is my favorite city in Bolivia, I really like it.
    I would probably consider living there if it wasn’t so stinking far away from everything!
    Great pictures tho, and the wine tasting looks hilarious.
    God bless.

  3. ¡que carretera! me trae buenas memorias de diversión, de amor y perdón, de risa. Que lindo lugar!!!

  4. Mi querido hermano Andrés, al ver las fotos, se las enseñé a Rudy, y no cabe duda que muchas de las viviendas y edificios son tan parecidos en México, ¿será porque tuvimos los mismos colonizadores?, je,je.
    Saludos (aunque sean atrasaditos)
